Had a good bike ride. I made it 32 miles, but just couldn't do the last 6 so hubby rode back and got the van for me. But it was nice to be back on the bike. Tomorrow, Virginia Creeper Trail!

Got out early this morning to get a 2 mile walk in. Feel inspired to start a new quilt this morning trying to use up some of my yards of stash.

One advantage to owning my own business for 31 years is that I have a tax # and wholesale accounts and I can order things for my own home at wholesale. I also have an account with a wholesale quilt fabric distributor so I have that advantage as well. So, if I retire and have to give up my tax # and wholesale accounts I will sorely miss them. So somehow or other, I have to figure a way to have a little side quilting business. I dont have a long arm so I don't quilt for others. I haven't designed any patterns to sell. I do have an Etsy account with nothing posted. Etsy would enable me to keep my accounts. So what do I do there? Sell fabric bundles? I could order a selection of nice blenders and sell blender and neutral bundles. Just musing and would welcome thoughts. I order batting as well. I help my church with it. But I would somehow have to make some money at something in order to keep it going. Musing alone. Carol

It has rained here off and on, but that is a good thing this time of the year. Machines are packed up so no sewing, but did cut fabric for games we will play at retreat. Can't wait, 4 days of nothing but sewing!

I might be getting my sewing mojo back. Saturday is our sit and sew for our guild and we will be working on our 12 charity quilts> I don't know if I will be sewing but I will definitely be cutting, sorting and teaching folks how to make the quilt! I love scrap quilting and watched Bonnie sew those amazing blocks on quiltcam today. She can take some ugly fabric and turn it into a masterpiece! Carol

I had a nice day. Hubby and I ran around in the am. I had to have lab work and mammogram then we took off to the feed mill and the quilt shop in the town near the feed mill. I bought fabric to make a lap quilt for my sister. Her 50th birthday is in Feb. I am also starting to think about making lap quilt for the 13 great nieces and nephews. All of them have had baby quilts but it is time to update. 2016 Christmas presents.

Am still having problems getting back into my quilting. My "honey" was such a part of my quilting process, I think that's why I'm having problems. Someday it will kick in again, or I will give myself permission...after all, Wayne's been gone 28 months.

But I have no problems crocheting and my recent project was crocheting purses out of plastic bags. Last night one of the aides came to my room, was looking at the purses and offered me $10 for one. I thought she was nuts...I would have just given it to her, but she insisted! It was made out of dollar store and Target bags. Each purse takes about 30-35 bags.

Just got back from a trip to MI to visit family. I brought a car load of dishes, crystal and a desk etc. We are finishing up cleaning out my moms house. She has been in Assisted Living since February. The house sold quickly and we have made it through all the inspections and close on Tuesday. We rented a storage unit and spent a few hours on Sunday moving the remaining stuff into it. Now my brother and sister can go thru the final boxes and decided what to do with it with out any pressure.

Megan, I am really looking forward to Sheep and Wool festival in a couple of weeks. I have a sheep quilt that I am donating for a scholarship auction. I will get a picture posted of it. I like to knit also because it is a little more portable then quilting. I finished three mittens in car on our trip.

My younger sister's family came to visit this weekend. Our first visitors and over night guests. They loved my DH cooking.

Still slowly hanging pictures. Looking for a furniture refinisher as I want to get the Chinese chest my mother in law brought over 50 years ago stripped and refinished.

Will plan on putting out borders to the latest top I've been working on.

Had another bad night last night, but today has been much better. We ate at a local restaurant, AJ's Dockside. Great grilled Mahi Mahi. Hung out in the room while a storm blew over, then a sunset walk on the beach. So nice to be feeling better.

I have tried fabric dying, but never wool. May have to give it a shot.

Yesterday we drove to Tybee Island for our 35th anniversary trip. Checked into the room and within 20 minutes I was sick as a dog. Spend most of the night throwing up. Today has been better, we did get to tour Savannah, but I wasn't very energetic. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel much better.

Julie - I went to the MD Sheep and Wool festival earlier this year and ended up about || this close to picking knitting back up because of all of the great yarn there. Unfortunately I have no time right now to both quilt and knit, so I didn't. I just encourage the friends who went with me to spend their money. LOL. Have a great time, it was so interesting watching the demos and seeing all of the different kinds of sheep.

It has been cool here the past couple of days.

Bev, when I had my wool processed last year I had half of it dyed brown, so I have brown and natural, but I had some wool roving that I bought that were dyed. I am taking a class on dyeing at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool festival we a few weeks.

Has rained here (in Minnesota) most of the week. Yesterday, after lunch, I was sitting outside and it was only in the 60's. Felt good when I first sat outside, but it quickly changed to too cold, right before the next rain shower. Almost felt like pre-winter....

Hopefully Friday will be in the 80's again....too many trees already changing colors, way too soon. Thinking winter will be a beast again this year. Think it's time to move south!!

AFter 5 years of non stop quilting and sewing, almost every day, I seem to have ground to a halt. The guild project I am working on is keeping me from doing much else. I want to get that over with. Sit and Sew on August 29, maybe we can knock it out. Carol

I think it is hot and sticky everywhere these days.

Julie, do you dye your yarn or use it natural?

We had a lot of rain last night but not to much in the way of storms. Today the high was only around 70. Tomorrow is supposed to be similar today but warming up into the 80 for the weekend.

Bev, I do have yarn spun but will need to do more as I go. I have 7 skeins drying after I set the twist.

It's humid and sticky here. They're calling for possible scattered thunderstorms in the area for the rest of the week. And I'm torn between wishing one would come through to end the damp sponge feeling in the air and not wanting one to come through so they can pour the foundation.

We are on another "run" of 90+ temps. We've officially passed a record for our area of # of days in a given year, 90 & above. I will be so glad when it's over!

Anyway, I will be away on the WA coast where the temps will be cooler. Hope/planning for lots of walks on the beach as well as spending a LOT of time sewing.

Oh, Annie, when it rains it pours. Did they at least give you something? Nothing hurts like an ear infection.

I think hubby is a bit better. His sinuses are draining and that is good, but now he coughs all the time.

Called to get a ride to the clinic this morning...four phone calls and two hours later the driver showed up. Rather difficult for the driver to know to pick me up when he never got called. Sat at the clinic for over an hour before urgent care nurse called my name (they obviously don't call in order of arrival). I should know the final results on Wednesday. At least my fever spiked at the clinic, so they knew I had something going on.

Just another hurry up and wait days...

Oh, Annie, be careful with those ear infections. If you aren't better tomorrow call your doc. My hubby has his annual August cold and has been running a fever. I'm probably gonna have to drag him to the doc tomorrow, too.

Julie, glad the rams are better.

It has rained most of the afternoon. DD got of work early and picked up the grands, so I have had a nice quiet house.

Anne, I hope you are feeling better.

I had a nice day. I had planned on sewing and doing laundry, but it was pretty warm and I need to iron blocks before I could get back to sewing. I ended up spinning awhile I did laundry instead.

Our rams are starting to feel better. They ran away from us when we were trying to give the probiotic to them. They were also standing and nibbling at the hay in the feeder when we went out for chores.

Have a good week.

Spent my Saturday sleeping the day away as I was dealing with a 101fever, think it was an ear infection. My body was on fire and I was chilled. Slowly the fever is going back down.

Julie, I'm sorry to hear about the rams. Perhaps they were less trouble when they didn't get along. Now they are conspiring together.

The high today was only 81! What a lovely day.

We have been dealing with sick sheep. Our rams got out and were able to get into the can with the corn in it. To much corn made them pretty sick and could have killed them. They seem to be improving slowly.

I hope everyone has a good weekend

Annie - Do you have someone who could take you around to interview other assisted living facilities? Maybe another one would be more responsive to dietary requirements or just a better place in general? And then that would allow you some more time to find a wheelchair accessible place without having to deal with your current situation?

I got back from DC yesterday and I did ok while I was on travel. Not great. But not horrible either. I walked 2 out of the 3 days that I was there. I made sure that my hotel was near a good walking trail and that made it easier because I hate hotel fitness centers. I did ok with eating until yesterday, which was a disaster. I went over 300 calories on Tuesday, 100 calories on Wednesday, and like I said, Thursday stunk. I'm not sure I'm going to have a loss this week, but I don't think that I'll gain, especially if I dial it back in and get back to basics today and tomorrow.

The parts came in and a new child came to do the repairs. I must say, even though they look like kids, they are extremely polite and neat. Cover their shoes, towels under the ladder legs, and make sure every bit of insulation that falls from the attic is picked up.

Annie, is this place licensed? There must be something that can be done about the dietary needs.

There are kids working here that look like they should still be in school....did we ever look that young at 20? hahahaha

Special diets are NOT addressed here. Two of the guys I hang out with are diabetic and on Dialysis, they have foods that they should not be eating. Management tells us that they can't cook specialty food for everyone and if you don't like what's on the menu - eat a hamburger. This place is a joke! I've been telling them for 30-months that I'm lactose intolerant, it goes in one ear and out the other. They refuse to believe me, because my doctor didn't tell them... well, it's probably because she doesn't know.

When can I move??? I have been looking for wheelchair accessible housing since Feb 2013!!!!

Well, the storm blew though but it was raining at midnight when DH got off. Since he rode his scooter to work, I went to get him. The worst local damage was a deep trench on a local golf course from a lightening strike.

The pest control can't come till tomorrow, but air conditioner ppl came today. There is a leak that can be repaired, so they will be back tomorrow. Bless his heart. It was after 4 when he got here, and it must be because that is when he got out of school. I swear, these guys get younger every day. He didn't look a day over 16. Does that mean I'm getting old?

Bev sorry you had bad weather last night; we have been having rain, but it is a good thing that it has slowed down for us....not all of our area is as lucky.

Yesterday the 10th, I took about 90 pictures to list stuff on Ebay for our church resale shop, helped a friend make up a group on the computer for a church group, did some laundry, cooked dinner and picked up a pack and play and high chair as hubby's grand's are coming the end of the month. I did get 2 things listed on Ebay so all in all it was a busy productive day.

Today the 11th, I will weigh in, grocery shop and then out for lunch with a friend and some fun window shopping at St. Armands Circle in Sarasota.

It was fun to be a kid for the weekend, but now I must adult. Today I cleaned house, got groceries, met the school bus, and worked on the wall hanging. We are having air conditioner problems, the unit is in the attic, there are bees in the attic, so our pest control must come before the unit can be serviced.

Tonight we have thunderstorms, trees down, lots of rain.

I spent my weekend squaring up 240 half square triangles from a block exchange at quilt guild. I then started cutting them to make the block I have decided to use. This coming Saturday is Lady's Day Away so I hope to have everything cut and spend the day sewing blocks.

I got to end my day today playing music with my friends.

Yesterday I took two of the grands for school shopping at Kohl's. Got an enormous amount of stuff with discounts, $188 including a pair of shoes and 2 T-shirts for daddy. School starts in a week. Time to start worrying again. Carol

Bev - isn't it great to act like a kid sometimes?

We've still been busy setting up our house. We had our first guests - my sister and her family traveled down from Massachusetts.

This week - the challenge of getting our cars and driver's licenses transferred to our new state.

and of course..... more settling - now we start looking at hanging pictures.

I did have a good weekend. Finished a quilt, started a wall hanging, had a water balloon fight, and even managed to work a day. It was a good weekend.

Annie,
That's horrible! I agree with what everyone else has said, get your doctor to prescribe you a specific nutrition plan. And how long do you have to be in assisted living before you can leave?

Annie, can't you get your doctor to write a prescription for fiber rich foods? Then they have to fix you a special diet? Carol

I am so glad to be home. It was nice to be able to work today, except for coming in to find out our computer server crashed 6 hours earlier and was gonna be down for a while. Things improved a bit, but it was a hard day.

Came home and hubby had breakfast cooked for dinner. Gotta love him.
